Today, we’ve rounded up the trends topping the bridal gown catwalk charts, and of course, they’re all available at Serendipity Bridal. Good luck ladies!
Bringing sexy back
Let’s face it… we want to look good from all angles and as you glide down that aisle, you can leave guests swooning over a gown that looks just as good from the back as it does from the front. 2016’s bridal shows saw models sashay down the runways in gowns with exquisite back detailing. Sheer backs are kept demure with carefully placed lace detailing. This dress from Suzanne Neville’s Melody Songbird collection ticks all the right boxes!
A firm favourite with brides, lace shows to sign of going away any time soon, and we have to say, we’re glad! Nothing screams bridal elegance more than a lavish lace gown. Think lace is boring? Think again! With a plunging neckline and striking fitted silhouette, we’ve fallen head over heels in love with ‘Pradera’ from Pronovias.
For the bride who likes a little more coverage, dresses with sleeves are perfect. Especially loved by brides with a penchant for vintage, sleeves will give your look an unexpected twist. ‘Capri’ by Cabotine is utterly romantic, while ‘Gabriella’ by Sottero and Midgley is favoured by brides with a flair for drama, perfect for creating that show-stopping moment!
Tiers of joy
Layers played an important role on this season’s runways and truly offer that ‘wow’ moment by creating dimension and volume. This year tasteful tiers are appealing to a bride’s romantic side as the trend adopts a much softer and dreamier approach. The embroidered metallic lace appliques on the bodice of ‘Maky’ immediately caught out eye!
With their girlish charm, strategically placed bows give gowns an unexpected twist. This sweet finishing touch will instantly add a hint of romance. What’s not to love? We’re all about ‘Trudy’ from Pronovia, and can we just take a minute to appreciate those pockets?…
Step away from the sweetheart neckline…this season is all about deep V-necklines! Sexy yet romantic, we have fallen hopelessly head-over-heels in love with this trend and so have fashion’s hottest designers including Suzanne Neville. Ladies, check out ‘Scarlette’ which combines a mixture of lace and illusion tulle.
Short and sweet
If you’ve got killer pins, show them off to the max in 2016’s bravest bridal gown trend. Sassy, above the knee dresses look great on petite brides who are worried about being swamped in longer dresses. They’re also a popular choice with the fashion conscious bride who calls for a couture look on her wedding day. Flirty and cute, check out ‘Angeles’ from Pronovias, for a perfect representation of this trend.
We’ve got to thank for a revival of the roaring twenties’ wedding dress trend! The flapper, Art Deco, glitz and glamour all played a huge role throughout this decade and these elements combine to offer the epitome of romance. We love how this Justin Alexander gown nods to the trend.
Looking for a gown fit for a Queen? Regal elegance calls for full tulle skirts and exquisite detailing and this Justin Alexander dress does just that! This to-die-for ballgown features a bateau neckline and cap sleeves, while a regal satin bow wraps around the natural waist. Dreamy!
Dare to bare?
From runway to red carpet and now on the bridal scene, gowns with strategically placed cut-outs are perfect for brides who dare to bare a little skin. Suzanne Neville’s take on this trend is true perfection with this gown offering just a hint of skin, balanced with gorgeous detailing.
